Thursday, 01. March 2018, UK, Almost Heaven + Director Q&A - #WomenInFilm2018

Our #WomenInFilm2018 season continues with the stunning HEAVEN by Carol Salter. Carol will be joining us for a post screening Q&A.

Winner of the Best Documentary Award at the British Independent Film Awards and a double nominee at the Berlin Film Festival, Almost Heaven follows quirky, innocent Ying Ling, an ambitious 17 year-old girl far from home, struggling to overcome her sense of displacement, alienation and fears of death as she trains to become a mortician in one of China’s largest funeral homes. A modest but powerful film on the major questions of life, death, work and adolescence, this is an intimate, tender and life-affirming portrait of a young woman on the cusp of adulthood.

#WomenInFilm2018 is presented in association with Birds Eye View, Hackney Wicked Women, WFTV, F-Rated, Bechdel Test Fest and #genesisters. As part of this year-long season we'll be screening only films that have: a female director/co-director, a female writer/co-writer, or a strong/iconic female lead.
